Everything that comes out of our shop is designed and hand made by us - Dan & Melissa Metzler. We don't have employees and we don't outsource any element of our production.
We like precise and thoughtful design. Melissa's work often includes woven or knitted elements and dyes. Dan's work includes intricate layers, a variety of hard woods and inlays, geometric shapes and light. We share a studio and collaborate on techniques and design challenges.
Our recent work includes one-of-a-kind items that can't be reproduced, limited editions and limited series of objects. In addition to our small scale work with boxes we have both created public art installations, masks for theatrical events, and other group projects.
We have two quality mutts: Rickie & Lilah. They are being quiet in this picture after playing in the snow all morning!
